The Last Stop On The Right’s Crazy Train
Falls Church News-Press ^ | August 29, 2012 | Wayne Besen

Posted on 08/30/2012 10:48:14 AM PDT by Neil E. Wright

The Crazy Train, built by the Religious Right and accelerated by the Tea Party, must stop before it goes off the rails and inflicts severe damage on America. It is unclear what the ultimate aims of these extremists truly are or where they ultimately want to take this country. But, it is increasingly clear that people like Rep. Todd "legitimate rape" Akin have a markedly different vision of this nation than the rest of us.

As their rhetoric grows more reckless, the fundamentalism more inflexible, the facts more fantastical, the threats more menacing, the politics more petulant, and the demands increasingly dictatorial, one has to wonder where this precarious road leads.

The right's incoherent hatred of its caricature of government mixes uneasily with its worship of weapons that have virtually nothing to do with hunting or helping protect families from intruders. Their unfounded attacks on America's foundations are as offensive as their stockpile of weapons appears to be offensive. We used to call such efforts sedition – but now they are simply an audition for some GOP and Tea Party candidates.

One man's sedition is another man's revolution.

In the ultimate mark of madness, leading anti-gay organizations are petitioning FOX News to blacklist me from the cable network's popular show, The O'Reilly Factor.

LOL. Its all about him!! I give him an "A" for hitting pretty much every Liberal boogeyman in this article -- crazy Christians, small government militants, etc. And in one sense, I agree with him that its madness to keep him off TV. He makes a great case -- to run screaming from Liberalism into the sanity of Conservatism.

It’s an axiom: Whatever the Democrats are acusing the Republicans of doing is what the Democrats themselves are doing.

Besen, of course. He has not a clue what the word sedition means, but he has never expressed a coherent thought in life.

If you read between the lines (and look at the book he authored) it’s clear Besen is as gay as a glittery disco ball. His infantile snit comes entirely from the gay perspective which has no concern for anyone else’s rights. I guess his domineering Mother didn’t teach him anything about the Constitution. Or maybe he’s just emulating her Constitutional ignorance like a good little boy trying to be just like Mommy.

...living in padded rooms had President Ronald Reagan not gutted the nation's mental health facilities.

Our esteemed correspondent is clearly not old enough to remember what actually happened.

Activists for the loonies found a couple of people, incorrectly institutionalized in mental-health facilities, who were quite sane.

They then asserted "These people are not mentally ill; therefore nobody in these facilities is mentally ill. Let My People Go!".

And now these drooling, gibbering morons are wandering around aimlessly, peeing on the sidewalks, and hitting people up for change.

Had nothing to do with Ronald Reagan gutting mental health facilities.

demands increasingly dictatorial

HAHAHA! ROLLING ON THE FLOOR LAUGHING MY OBAMA OFF!

Dictatorial? Wayne, son, you are freaking delusional.

You mean dictatorial, like forcing every adult in America to give an increasing amount of their pay to fund government infanticide, in direct conflict with their faith?

You mean dictatorial, like forcing every adult in America to buy something whether they want it or not?

You mean dictatorial, like forcing every automobile owner to put E15 in their tank whether they want it or not?

You mean dictatorial, like forcing every utility company to collectively fellate Obamugabe's EPA or shut down every coal-powered electric generation plant?

Freaking. Delusional.

We used to call such efforts sedition – but now they are simply an audition for some GOP and Tea Party candidates.

se·di·tion n. 1. Conduct or language inciting rebellion against the lawful authority of a state.

If the federal government is acting outside its lawful authority under the constitution, then resistance to the tyranny of a usurper who violates his Oath of Office cannot be sedition. I have no intention to rebel against lawful governmental authority, but neither do I intend to in any way support acts of evil committed by government officials who are abusing their power.

For his screed, Besen should be awarded the Order of the Pink Swastika.

As for his dislike of gun rights people, MOLON LABE!

The writer uses the following as a “fringe view”.

“When government restricts and punishes the people for exercising their First Amendment rights, then we are to default to the Second Amendment (right to keep and bear arms)”.

The writer does not seem to realize that while it’s his privilege to bend over when the government seeks to deny us freedom of expression, it is our right, and even the duty for the rest of us to remain standing and tell the govt where to get off.

Wayne. You should know how ridiculous you SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS sound trying to argue an issue by using the diversion tactic on a petty side issue. It only shows you truly can’t win the legitimate issue. It also signals it’s all over for you frauds in November.

It’s just typical leftist rhetoric trying to distract Americans from the problem of the Dems spending us into oblivion. Every week some leftist scribbler like Besen excretes a column about how crazy are conservatives. Not once in their rants will they ever bother to bring up the national debt. Besen knows he can’t talk about a succesful Obama admin, so he has to reiterate every leftist paranoid fantasy about conservatives to keep the truth from his gullible readers.

Great Falls VA is such a liberal bastion of Fed (and other) government workers. The writer should be in a mental institution (if he isn’t already). Ha...ha...ha...what a pinheaded goof.

Wayne Besen sounds scared. When an opponent is scared, they make mistakes. I'm glad Wayne Besen wrote this pap.

The only thing he left out was calling us racist.
